The minilessons in this timely book go beyond grammar, spelling, and conventions to focus on comprehensive written communication as one of today’s essential skills. These fresh minilessons explore how to help students go beyond fuzzy thinking and generic voice and help them organize their thinking, solve problems, identify key ideas, and reflect on different perspectives. The book argues that writing is important to help students communicate ideas to others, as well as document their own thoughts. A veritable buffet of tips, tools, and strategies gives teachers ideas to build teaching repertoire, and help their students’ work shine a little brighter.
